Disclaimer: Don’t blame us if your solo travel list finds new companions today.
1. Idaho, North America
The potato land of the US is incredibly calm to the eyes and home to outdoor recreation and music festivals. It also saves you the cost of going to Niagara by replacing it with Twin Falls, an excellent place for exploring Idaho’s abundant natural heritage.
2. Nairobi, Africa
Before Money Heist put Nairobi as a character – we had the destination as a must-to-search-for. Art, music, happiness (furahi-day), and a mug of Tusker (Kenya’s most loved beer brand) – the city puts you in a parallel universe just by its visuals.
3. Córdoba, South America
A whole hipster experience with the most lit clubs and bars for great nightlife – the city also offers a complimentary version through its exceptional landscape views for the day. Filled with colonial history, Córdoba is an escape with its road-tripping vibe and helps people to get back in touch with their spiritual side.
4. Croatia, Europe
Beautiful beaches, delicious food, fulfilling historical points, and a sensation after Game of Thrones appeared on TV – Croatia is the land of affordable luxury. Chilling at the Dalmatian Islands with a wine glass in your hand – a plate of hotly cooked pancakes, and making your itinerary for the next day filled with adventures in the city – Croatia won’t let you sleep but will help you relax.
5. Perth, Australia
Rivers, lakes, beaches, and islands – Perth is home to everything water and lovely weather all around the year. A smaller populated region with stunning locations and peaking tourism – the city is a free public transport zone where people prefer to hop in on foot, by bicycle, or buses. Navigation is easy, and the compact town allows you to get closer to nature and wildlife again.
6. Turkey, Asia
A wholesome day filled with a hamam experience followed by sacred architecture and food, to end up with the most hospitable people asking you to come to their homes and have the famous Turkish tea – welcome to the Turkish world.
And don’t forget to shop from the open markets and fill your phone gallery with the creative and artistic ruins of the place and its history.
7. Ushuaia, Antarctica
The southernmost city in the world brings a mild surprise to the eyes – everyday life on the planet’s coldest continent. National parks and art summits and a visual treat to the world – Ushuaia introduces you to sea lions and penguin colonies, creating an experience like no other.
With the broadest range of expeditions possible and being the most affordable option on the Antarctica territory – Ushuaia sure is both a pleasant surprise and our most vital impulse to start packing our bags right away.
